Flushability – IWSFG vs GD4 Slosh Box

The Slosh Box test is 1 of the 7 tests that a Wet Wipe or wipe product must pass to be labeled as “flushable” based on the Association of the nonwoven Fabrics Industry, (INDA) Guidance Document 4 on Flushability Test Methods. This is an industry voluntary standard put out by INDA. The International Water Services Flushability Group, (IWSFG) has proposed an alternative method. This video is an overview comparison of the two methods. The objective of this test it to demonstrate that the product will disperse (start to come apart) in the sewer system before reaching the waste water treatment plant.
